At VaiSulWeb virtualization is so pervasive that basically there aren’t physical machines other than virtualization hosts or storage since about 2008 or 2009. That means about 10 years now. And counting. Microsoft Hyper-V served us very well and over time our reliance on that technology increased with happy results. It has been solid and consistent and allowed us to scale up more and more, adding new technologies and solutions and enabling us to virtualize roles and workloads that seemed a bit difficult to virtualize.
As many other providers, we recently started integrating AMD CPUs into our infrastructure, given the terrific advantages that those could bring to the [...]
La prima scelta che è stato necessario prendere mentre progettavamo il design di Skynet era ovviamente il framework o i framework da usare per lo sviluppo. Le soluzioni sono moltissime e sicuramente ognuno ha delle ragioni specifiche per pensare a questa o quella soluzione in modo da semplificare il lavoro ed ottenere magari una piattaforma aperta che possa includere altre tecnologie o soluzioni. Un esempio tipico è quello di partire da un progetto opensource o magari disegnare un frontend basato su WordPress e sviluppare estensioni e moduli per integrare le funzionalità che servono. Con tutte le tecnologie che esistono, non c’è un modo giusto o sbagliato ma semplicemente una [...]
Microsoft is investing a lot into its new Server Manager though Redmond is not encouraging that parallelism and often says that Windows Admin Center is not a 1-to-1 replacement for Server Manager. That is true because Server Manager and its underlying technology has a deeper connection with the operating system and it can be considered a platform while Winows Admin Center can be considered a very sophisticated shell that mostly works through WMI/Powershell connections.
However, Windows Admin Center is gaining a lot of traction and it’s quickly gaining support because its Web UI allows to embed important tasks into simple to access and to use [...]
We had a weird problem when moving a WordPress website for a customer: after DUMPing it out of MySQL, we noted that the wp_options table had a problem, namely the table had no primary key and no index on the option_name field. We noted that because the WordPress website, once moved, looked akward and wrong, missing some key pieces and it also seemed to use settings that were old. The reason was that, with primary key missing, lots of duplicate records were stored inside the table and I’m pretty sure it was not what the website was meant to do. Field option_id was set to 0 in most cases when it should have been an auto-incremented integer plus it seemed [...]
